You say goodbye and I say hello
(Hello, goodbye, hello, goodbye) Hello, hello – song, “Hello, Goodbye” by The Beatles
Thoughts are just thoughts and they are inevitable. It’s foolish to try and control them. As Jeff Bridges advises “thoughts are like secretions.”
A practice for when the firehose of negative thoughts threaten to overwhelm and engulf you…
First, welcome them.
Second, thank them for coming.
Third, say goodbye.
Put another way…
“Thank you for coming.”
“Goodbye for now.”
